Made famous by The New York Times best-seller Band of Brothers and the critically acclaimed miniseries that followed, the stories of the Easy Company members were immortalized by the National WWII Museum founder Stephen E. Ambrose. On this unforgettable, 13-day travel experience, you will follow in the footsteps of Easy Company, from England to the hedgerows of Normandy, along "Hell's Highway" in the Netherlands, through the foxholes surrounding Bastogne, and atop the Eagle's Nest. This journey remains core to the WWII Museum’s mission – offering rare access to sites, extraordinary guides, and quaint regional accommodations. As the authority on World War II, the Museum draws upon its collection of oral histories, photographs, and artifacts to deliver the most memorable, emotional, educational, and extraordinary travel experiences. Led by expert battlefield guides and accompanied by an original cast member from the miniseries, this tour immerses you in the incredible lives of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne. Hear the incredible stories of heroism and triumph on this very special tour. An optional three-night pre-tour on “Churchill’s London” is also available.
